Enhanced Services for Kalmar County Council Thanks to New IT Strategy

| Client story

Capgemini worked with a Healthcare Authority in Sweden to develop new Service-Oriented Architecture

“ Without Capgemini we wouldn’t have been where we are today. Our strategic partnership has made it possible for us to take early strategic actions. Capgemini helps us to meet the future ”Peter Alvinsson, CIO, Kalmar County Council

The Situation

Sweden seeks to be world-class in the use of IT in healthcare provision. The administration for Kalmar County Council needed to establish a base for existing and future IT systems in order that enhanced, yet cost-effective, services could be provided to patients and healthcare personnel.

The goal was to share digital information of medical records in a secure way. The vision was “one patient” one medical case-book”.

The Solution

Capgemini worked closely with Kalmar County Council to establish an IT strategy based on Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and implement a new healthcare administration system.

The system comprises IBM Blade servers, storage networks, an Oracle database, SeeBeyond middleware and Cambio COSMIC as the selected healthcare package.

The Result

With the new IT strategy and architecture in place, Kalmar County Council has an effective way to manage healthcare administration. The Council has a flexible platform that is well adjusted for future solutions.

The system facilitates cost savings and more efficient use of resources. It releases major parts of the administrative burden for healthcare personnel. Council citizens now receive enhanced healthcare services, and have easier, yet secure, access to their own medical records.
